National Drone Safety Awareness Week is for Everyone

You are invited to join the FAA and the drone community for the third annual National Drone Safety Awareness Week, September 13-19. This year the focus will be on engaging with recreational flyers.

Participation is key to engage in an important safety conversation and to increase public acceptance of drones.

Drone operators are being encouraged to reach out to the public about drone safety and to share stories about how drones are being used for good. Whether you’re a recreational flyer, remote pilot, public safety official or business, it’s probably that you have a positive drone story, best practice, or safety information to share.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Host or participate in a virtual or in-person event (please follow all local health guidelines when planning your event). And please tell us about it – we encourage you to share your events with the entire community using the Unmanned Safety Team’s National Drone Safety Week Voluntary Tracking Tool
  • Follow and share social media updates from @FAADroneZone and @UAST
  • Post your own cool social content and use #DroneWeek
  • Participate in one of our many fun activities like our photo showcase or Drone@Home
